Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

This is a return visit here but not my first doctor, if you get my drift. My family practioner referred me to this office and I am returning for my second visit because it went so well the first time.

When I went for my procedure the secretary and the nurses were excellent. The Anesthesiologist had to start my IV and did a wonderful job. They all listened to me and were kind. My only problem was making an appointment. There were so many options and buttons to push. I prefer to be able to speak to a person more easily.

The front desk staff, Dr. Blum, Margie, Ashley, and Renee all made my colonoscopy a little easier. Nobody wants to go through this procedure, however, this is my second colonoscopy at this facility and I highly recommend!

Dr. Blum was very professional and personable and treated me with consideration and compassion. He listened to my complaints and gave me clear and concise information to help me to resolve them in the most effective way that worked the best for me. In the past, he has correctly diagnosed and treated me when a different physician the day before missed it and sent me home. He literally saved my life, and I would have had a much different outcome without his expert diagnosis and proactive treatment. I would highly recommend him to anyone as a highly qualified and competent physician who is there to help and guide you in your best overall health.

I was unable to set up a visit via Zoom during the pandemic but Dr. Blum found a work-around. My experience in dealing with the office was generally good and he was timely in his responses on their portal. It was very difficult to reach his office by telephone.
